Modelmaker. I really like the Wash from the bottom and the color of the upper area. Was he really that much chocolate?
I don't know but it looks good me thinks! :)

Looks good to me, too, Sean!  Stunning Snipe.

Here's my Snipe - this is the Blue Max 1/48 scale kit, painted up to represent a machine of 4SQN Australian Flying Corps.  This one needed a few details added (like a scratch built interior), and is tricky because you need to do things like manufacture your own struts.  But overall the base kit is quite nice and accurate.











I do have the 1/32 WNW kit in the stash that I would like to get to some time soon too....

Cheers

Des, Brad, Dave, Guy, Sean, what absolutely wonderful models of the Snipes.  You have
all really out-done yourselves! Darnit, now I'm going to have to get one of them too! ;)
Thank you for sharing with us. :)

Cheers,
Ernie

........what everyone's already said, with great enthusiasm! There's some really impressive modelling here, and it's a pleasure to view these three Gent's work! Who said the Snipe was ugly or "just another exercise in PC10"?
Cheers,
